The Lord said to Satan, “May the Lord correct you! He has chosen Jerusalem. So may he correct you! Isn’t this man Jeshua like a burning stick pulled out of the fire?” Jeshua stood in front of the angel. He was wearing clothes that were very dirty. The angel spoke to those who were standing near him. He said, “Take his dirty clothes off.” He said to Jeshua, “I have taken your sin away. I will put fine clothes on you.” I added, “Put a clean turban on his head.” So they did. And they dressed him while the angel of the Lord stood by. Then the angel spoke to Jeshua.

And I will give you a place among these who are standing here. “‘High priest Jeshua, pay attention! I want you other priests who are sitting with Jeshua to listen also.

Surely, if He loved us, He would take all these things away from us. After all, doesn’t loving us mean He wants our lives to be easy and comfortable? Well, no, it doesn’t.
